When it comes to all things about the Netherlands, we are the experts as we know all the best spots and places. You can therefore trust us when we say that Amsterdam is one of the many great places to go for a Easter vacation. As much as it’s great for a city break, you can also see some of the beautiful nature of the Netherlands like the colourful tulips and explore the city on bikes as a family. The absolute must-see attraction for the young ones this Easter, is the Artis Royal Zoo as it’s the perfect place for the animal loving kids and the parents who are eager to capture perfect pictures. It is also located in the centre of Amsterdam so you do not have to commute for a long time if you are with toddlers. You can also join the kids in different Easter traditions such as Easter egg hunts, egg decorating, festive treats, a scavenger hunt and before you know it you have an entire family photo album. So where is the best place to stay? There’s a great EuroParcs Resort just 15 minutes away from Amsterdam, so if the kids do exhaust themselves out at the zoo you can get them home to sleep in no time at all.
5. Germany: The Baltic Sea
Last but not least, we have one more perfect Easter holiday destination in Germany near the Baltic Sea. Sure in the UK we have Brighton beach at home but at this seaside area there is more than enough sand for the kids to build sandcastles and get their kites soaring high through the wind. Fancy a trip to the amusement park? Then you can simply visit Hansa Park and treat the kids to some exciting and thrilling rides. We highly recommend staying at the HansaPark Resort where you can also take advantage of the sauna and the other facilities.
